Grandview just keeps finding a way and now is just one win away from another trip to the Final Four. Senior big men Makye Boles and Pedro Brown have turned it up in the playoffs, controlling the interior. The Pride now heads down to Miami to face a Brito team with size that can match Grandview. This game however may come down to guard play, if so the edge goes to Grandview, junior PG Gunner Walters has done it all this season showing his ability to not only score but facilitate when needed. A couple X factors for Grandview are junior guards Reilly Berg and Drew Cohen. Berg has made several key plays this season while Cohen came up huge knocking down three big 3 pointers in the win over Atlantic Christian Tuesday night.

Dwyer 70 vs Coral Springs 54
Dwyer is back, there is no doubt about it. The only thing standing between them and another trip to state is an old nemesis from Broward county. Coral Springs and Devin Barta pulled of one of the bigger upsets in recent memory taking down the then defending 9A state champions Wellington on its home floor back in 2016. The Colts went on to win the state title that season. Plenty has transpired in the time in between but Barta is back at Coral Springs and has his team back with another shot at Lakeland. Head Coach Fred Ross is no stranger to this time of year either, looking for his fourth state title and first since 2011. The Panthers have a great mix of senior leadership and young talent, seniors Rodrick Johnson and Trevon Taylor are flanked by a talented group of underclassmen led by Xavier Scott, Juwan Dawes and Kyle McNeal.
